Since its release more than four years ago, “The LEGO Movie” has already spawned two spinoffs in “The LEGO Batman Movie” and “The LEGO Ninjago Movie.” Its direct sequel has been delayed several times due to development issues and the departure of its original director Rob Schrab (“Community”).
“The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part,” directed by Mike Mitchell (“Monsters vs. Aliens”), is scheduled to hit theaters on Friday, February 8, 2019.
